At KPMG, you'll join a team of diverse and dedicated problem solvers, connected by a common cause: turning insight into opportunity for clients and communities around the world.

The opportunity

As an Accounting Technician, you will be responsible for supporting the period end accounting relevant to your clients. The role provides the opportunity for much technical learning and growth. You are a business partner to each owner and management group you provide services to and will be expected to learn each client's financial position inside and out!

This role is ideal for someone who is not only tech savvy but willing to put in the time and effort to ensure a lasting positive impact on both our clients and KPMG.

    • Preparation of corporate income tax returns
    • Bookkeeping to complete the files, occasionally on a monthly basis

    • Maintain relevant documentation as backup to support journal entries made in the financial statements
    • Ongoing communication with clients and their representatives throughout the year
    • Financial analysis as needed

    At times, business needs arise and employees are required and agree to work beyond their normal workday or work week to fulfill the accountabilities required for their role. Likewise, people need time to devote to personal matters, our approach to flexibility provides for this.

What you bring to the role

  • 2-3 years' relevant work experience with exposure to a variety of industries, preferably in a multi-client environment
  • Accounting/business diploma/certificate or equivalent work experience
